Cabildo, New Orleans, 1920ies

Another antique postcard of Old New Orleans— this is the old prison courtyard. The wry comment about Louisiana is that it’s half under water and half under indictment. In the old days, this is where the half under indictment in New Orleans would have been held.

Reporters and historians may disagree over wether it was more or less comfortable than the Superdome.
